    Lose bodyfat, masturbate more, watch your iron intake (RBC count), wrist straps are for sissies.

    It's more genetic than anything else ... U have to have what is called thin skin, meaning ur veins are more apt to pop out cause of the denisty or thickness of ur skin ... But u could shoot for a super, super low-fat diet with tons of cardio ... If ur veins barely pop out from working out, eating super right food in general -- it prolly won't happen that easy ...

    It's a great look, but very few can get it w/out proper training and nutrition and of course, genetics

    Low SubQ bodyfat will help with vascularity.

    I just started working out my forearms like a week ago, after working out they pop out near the wrists but they go back to normal after a while, when not working out i can see them along my forearm but their definently not popping out

    I have also noticed as I have gotten older I have much more vascularity, not too sure why (skin has gotten thinner).

    i use straps and my forearms are one of my best developed bp's. not only does it help your mind to muscle connection by not having to worry about your grip, its tough doing chinups with your own weight when you weigh 225 and your forearms give out first.

    as long as you keep doing forearm exercises there's nothing wrong with straps.

    If you stop using the straps your forearms will strengthen and you will be capable of doing the chins without your grip giving out.

    Thats fabulous for people like you, but for many of us reducing the workload on the forearms is going to reduce the growth and strength of such. If you walk with a crutch your whole life you will be weaker because of it, same with straps.

    I'm sorry that your grip fails you, I dont need straps, and I dont have to worry about my grip failing me so there is no reduced "mind to muscle connection" as you put it.

    How old are you Prince?
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    for me personally, i'd rather not have my back dev. suffer because my forearms give out.
    i find just doing regular forearm exercises are good enough to build your forearms.

    when i do back, i want my back muscles to fail me, not my grip. thats great for you that you have a good grip. i do too, i only use them on certain exercises (rowing and chins) but some of us less gifted need to use them.

    I use wrist wraps, but only for olympic lifting. I doubt people will appreciate my forearm development when I lose my grip and throw 300lbs at their heads.
